VOICE - Vision On Innovation for Choral music in Europe

VOICE is a European project for the sustainable development and innovation of choral singing, a first-time major cooperation between choral operators, music educators and researchers.

It is a joint effort of 15 coorganisers, spread over 11 countries.

The aims of VOICE are

  • to encourage new events and methods and the creation of innovative repertoire
  • promote the voice as universal instrument
  • improve the quality of vocal music
  • enable transnational mobility and circulation of (young) musicians and choral works
  • enhance the dialogue between cultures and generations as well as the exchange of expertise 
  • develop new tools for the promotion of singing in music education.

VOICE will invest in research on the voice in partnership with universities and collect data on choral life in Europe. The 15 partners will spread the results to develop a new vision on choral singing in Europe.
